On May 24, 2012, the FCC released their document, New Medical Body Area Network (MBAN) Service  –  First Report and Order (Order) and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (FNPRM) Issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) (ET Docket No. 08-59 (rel. May 24, 2012) to allocate 40 MHz of spectrum between 2360 – 2400 MHz on a secondary basis for a new Medical Body Area Network (MBAN) service.

New spectrum rules will allow healthcare professionals to interact with patients through wireless body sensors to monitor, diagnose and control patient therapies remotely without the use of restricting cables, and to aggregate data from the sensors for backhaul to monitoring stations.  MBANs will consist of multiple body-worn sensors and a transmitter /hub (i.e., a type of “base station”) that controls sensor communications.

MBANs will be connected to other telecommunications systems (e.g., local area networks (LANs) such as Ethernet and Wi-Fi links) using spectrum outside the 2360 – 2400 MHz band.  The Order represents the culmination of years of FCC study and of negotiations between supporters of the spectrum allocation for MBAN (such as GE Healthcare and Philips Healhcare) and existing licensees in the spectrum (e.g. Aeronautical Mobile Telemetry (AMT)) over potential interference concerns.

The Order creates a regulatory framework to deploy and operate medical devices associated with MBANS including (1) service rules including operator eligibility, permissible communications, authorized locations, and equipment authorization; (ii)  technical rules involving authorized bandwidth, channel aggregation, transmitter operation and power limits, radiofrequency (RF) safety, and unwanted emissions; and (iii) registration and coordination requirements.

On the 2nd Hour of the OCOL with Dr. Hildy, she and her guest Film Director and Producer, Veronica Hendricks will discuss the new MBAN regulations, which include the following:

  • MBAN medical devices are eligible for “license-by-rule” operation pursuant to Part 95 of the FCC’s Rules on a shared, non-exclusive basis with respect to each other and without the need for the MBAN to be individually licensed.
  • MBAN operations in the 2360 – 2390 MHz band are limited to indoor locations within health care facilities, while MBAN operations in the 2390 – 2400 MHz ban are permitted in any location.

And if time permits Veronica and Dr. Hildy will go into the new field of “Cognitive Radio” (CR), which is another medical wireless interface of hospital environments and operating rooms and how wireless sensors are used in all of these technologies.
